Getting Focused without Cropping the Big Picture: The System Office in California
Hom, Willard C.
New Directions for Institutional Research, n147 p25-46 Fall 2010
This chapter describes the system office for community college institutional research in California. As the system IR office for the largest community college system in the nation, it is often looked to as a leader for other states and community college IR systems. The author notes the office's administrative environment, its staffing and functions, its recent changes, and its prospects for the near future. Readers will observe a number of similarities to their own state IR offices, and some important distinctions as well. (Contains 3 figures and 1 table.)
